  • Notes 
    • WILLIAM W. HUME, M. D. A physician who began his work-
      in Raleigh County twenty years ago, Doctor Hume in recent
      years has withdrawn from general practice and is now
      a widely known and acknowledged specialist in eye, ear,
      nose and throat diseases at Beckley, and in that field rep-
      resents some of the highest abilities available in this section
      of the state.

      Doctor Hume was born in Orange County, Virginia, Sep-
      tember 21, 1866. He represents a long line of Virginia
      ancestors, the first of the name coming to this country in
      1617. Another branch of the family included the famous
      Scotch historian and philosopher, David Hume. The par-
      ents of Doctor Hume were Dr. Charles E. and Mary E.
      (Thompson) Hume, natives of Virginia. His father made
      for himself a place of prominence in his profession. He
      waa in the Confederate army during the Civil war, and
      he treated both Union and Confederate soldiers in his pro-
      fessional capacity. His home was in the path of both
      armies, and the soldiers took everything valuable from the
      place. After the war Dr. Charles Hume settled in Cul-
      peper County, and he and his wife are now deceased.

      William W. Hume acquired his early education in the
      common schools of Culpeper County, and he had to de-
      pend on himself for his higher education. For seven years
      he was engaged in the drug business at Hinton, West Vir-
      ginia, and left there to begin the study of medicine in the
      University of Virginia at Charlottesville, where he gradu-
      ated M. D. in 1901. For four years he did a general country
      practice in Raleigh County, and then moved to Beckley,
      and a few years later he began his preparation for his
      special line of work. During 1914 Doctor Hume was a
      student of diseases of the nose and throat in the Philadel-
      phia Polyclinic, and took eye and ear courses in the Wills
      Eye Hospital at Philadelphia. After his return to Beck-
      ley he limited his practice to eye, ear, nose and throat.
      During the war he was a member of the Examining Board.
      Doctor Hume now has associated with him in practice
      Dr. J. H. Hoskins, a nephew of Mrs. Hume.

      Doctor Hoskins was born April 22, 1892, in Essex County,
      Virginia, son of W. D. and Ella Hoskins, and during the
      World war he was commissioned first lieutenant in the Med-
      ical Corps, April 10, 1918. He was on duty three weeks
      at Port Oglethorpe, Georgia, and then transferred to the
      Base Hospital at Camp Raritan, Metuchen, New Jersey,
      whore he received his honorable discharge January 20,
      1919. Doctor Hume and Doctor Hoskins are both mem-
      bers of the surgical staff of the Kings Daughters Hospital
      of Beckley.

      In 1903, in Essex County, Virginia, Doctor Hume married
      Gazelle Hundley, daughter of John T. and Sallie (Garnett)
      Hundley, natives of Virginia. Her father was an educator
      and a soldier in the Civil war. Doctor Hume and wife
      have no children of their own, but for a number of years
      have been deeply interested in the welfare and progress of
      her sister's children, including Doctor Hoskins. They
      adopted two of the daughters, Beverly Hoskins Hume and
      Mathilda Hoskins Hume. Doctor Hume is a member of the
      Christian Church, is a Royal Arch and Knight Templar
      Mason and Shriner, votes as a democrat, and is a member
      of the County and State Medical associations. He and his
      family live in the finest home at Beckley.
